Best children't museums far and wide
Some of the other children's museums we've visited are either too small and meant for the younger crowd or are so massive that you get lost in the exhibits.

Pioneer Farms

I would definitely recommend visiting and supporting this fantastic living history museum.
I thought it would he a quick in and out like normal museum districts, but it is a large complex that takes about 2-3 hours.
Museum of The Weird
#17 of 57 Museums in Austin
As someone who's been to dozens of similar museums (my parents had a soft spot for Ripley's-esque attractions when I was growing up) this one was a lot of fun.
It used to be an art gallery and Johnny Depp lived there while filming "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" Just a neat, neat little museum.
Neill-Cochran House Museum
#18 of 57 Museums in Austin
Now a history museum, the Neill Cochran house was the first house built that far north of town, by the same architect who built other Austin classics like the governor's mansion and the French Legation.
I love taking my family to the Neill-Cochran House Museum for activities and exhibits.
